Another new addition to the Landscape Oil Gallery and to an art alcove in our home, is the attached art print “The Path”. Having spent 6 months living in the Seattle area last year, I have a number of hiking pictures with trails and paths. I have used a number of them for my Inspiration Gallery, but I was wanting to try something totally different with a couple of them. Using a gothic oil technique (large brush strokes and warm earth tones), I created “The Path” . I added the red tone more for a color push and to make the path stand out. This was one of those prints I was still on the fence about and not really sure I was going to add it to the collection, when about a month ago, my wife came into my office while I was working on it. She studied the piece for awhile without saying anything (trust me she is brutally honest with her thoughts) and asked to have it framed for an art alcove we have in one of our hallways. I was truly surprised, but had it framed and matted per her request. I am drawn to this particular style of art with the old world feel as it compliments a number of interior designs. So, all of that said, I have attached the completed art print, an iPhone photo of the print matted and framed and then a copy of the original shot it is based on.
Kind of an interesting evolution from original photo to framed art print. Thanks for stopping by!
